Poster Display Equipment

  • A large display board giving a display area of approximately 90cm wide x 120cm high will be provided for your poster display. Please refer to the above diagram
  • Drawing pins will be provided to all poster presenters at the congress. On-site staff will be available to assist you.
  • Your poster number will be provided on the display board. Please ensure that your poster title and authors’ as stated on the submitted abstract are printed on your poster.


  • Do not include references unless it is imperative
  • Please include financial disclosure


  • Do not use several A4 sheets. If necessary please note that individual pieces of paper should be pre-mounted onto one large piece of paper or card.
  • The reading order of the a poster should be down columns, rather than across rows
  • Use just one or two colors on a plain colored background
  • Put the conclusions in a prominent panel (preferably at the bottom of the poster)
  • Watermarks in the middle of a poster tend to distract
  • Do not justify the column text if there are few words to a line
  • Be selective in your use of bullet points, perhaps only in the conclusion


  • Poster body text must be readable from 2 meters (with possible exception of references) and the title from 4-5 meters
  • Avoid capital letters except at the beginning of sentences and proper nouns
  • Use a black sans serif font e.g. Arial or Gill Sans throughout
  • Do not underline anything
    Use a bolder, larger typeface for the main titles and headings. It can be effective to use a different typeface for headings and subheadings
  • To emphasize body text, use a bold or italic font


  • Check the draft of your poster very carefully to ensure that there are no typographical or style errors
  • Use matt (non reflective) encapsulation to protect the poster

Display, Installation, Presentation, and Removal Times
Poster presenters should plan to be beside their posters during the designated coffee breaks, as specified in the program.
Poster Board numbers will be posted in the abstract listing on the congress website before the start of the congress and will also be listed in the Congress app.

Posters must be removed at the end of the Congress. The Congress Organizing Committee will not be responsible for posters that are not removed on time.
